I didn't disagree with that (though I haven't read Øyvind Stenhaug's
response yet, which might lead me to).

However, I pointed out that Appendix E contradicts other statements
in the specification.

I'd also point out that the first option in Appendix E is a pretty
bad behavior, since it allows outlines to be covered by the
background of an inline on the previous line.  I think what Gecko
and WebKit implement is preferable to that behavior.
